Subject: SocialShare Twitter tweak

Replacing the Share URL for Twitter with the following text will make a nicer sharing experience (will take advantage of twitter's new URL shortener, the code included with the plugin does not seem to do that):

PHP Formatted Code
http://twitter.com/intent/tweet?text=<SHARETITLE>&url=<SHAREURL>


p.s. I am using the SocialShare plugin 1.1 with Geeklog 1.8.0.

You can see a demo here:

Interesting, yes it does now seem to do that.

This seems to work better:

PHP Formatted Code
http://twitter.com/share?text=<SHARETITLE>&url=<SHAREURL>

Hi Dan,

Thanks for the heads up. I have implemented it to my site and I am really happy with the outcome.
